If you listen to the dicussions you will find cards on space cooperation promoting multipolarity, space exploration as a key to peace, etc. All fro mthis week, mostly all from the heads of agency and other significant leaders in teh field, and all useable. If you are at all interested in Space, listen in - and if you like Mars, definitely listen to Dr. Squyer's keynote on Martian exploration, it's an amazingly good lecture.

Subjects covered include the future of exploration, lunar exploration, and exploration/exploitation of space.
